East Africa Public Health Lab Network Bulletin
The East Africa Public Health Lab Network(EAPHLN) Bulletin for August 2012 is out. The Bulletin is a quarterly publication produced by the Department of Disease Prevention and Control for the East Africa Public Health Lab Network(EAPHLN). The newsletter focuses on laboratory accreditation, given the fact that well functioning laboratories with modern diagnostic technologies are critical for accurate and timely diagnosis - a component that the EAPHLN project hinges on.
The bulletin also highlights some activities of the Operational Research where KEMRI (Dr. Sabah Omar and the team) is taking lead on. The newsletter further touches on the inclusion of video conferencing solution and other ICT investment to help project members converge and share knowledge more easily.

EAPHLN is a regional laboratory network that aims to: (a) enhance access to diagnostic services for vulnerable groups to contain the spread of diseases in cross border areas; (b) improve capacity to provide specialized diagnostic services and conduct drug resistance monitoring at regional level; (c) contribute to disease surveillance and emergency preparedness efforts through the availability of timely lab data to provide early warning of public health events; and (d) serve as a platform for conducting training and research.
